A SPECIAL EVENT! BRAD MELTZER'S THE PRESIDENT'S SHADOW!

"ON SALE TODAY"
A VERY SPECIAL GIVEAWAY!
GIVEAWAY ENDED
THE PRESIDENT'S SHADOW
BY BRAD MELTZER
  
ABOUT THE BOOK:
A severed arm, found buried in the White House Rose Garden.
A lethal message with terrible consequences for the Presidency.
And a hidden secret in one family's past that will have repercussions for the entire nation.

Following The Inner Circle and The Fifth Assassin, #1 bestselling author Brad Meltzer returns with . . .

THE PRESIDENT'S SHADOW

There are stories no one knows. Hidden stories. I find those stories for a living.

To most, it looks like Beecher White has an ordinary job. A young staffer with the National Archives in Washington, D.C., he's responsible for safekeeping the government's most important documents . . . and, sometimes, its most closely held secrets.

But there are a powerful few who know his other role. Beecher is a member of the Culper Ring, a 200-year-old secret society founded by George Washington and charged with protecting the Presidency.
Now the current occupant of the White House needs the Culper Ring's help. The alarming discovery of the buried arm has the President's team in a rightful panic. Who buried the arm? How did they get past White House security? And most important: What's the message hidden in the arm's closed fist? Indeed, the puzzle inside has a clear intended recipient, and it isn't the President. It's Beecher, himself.

Beecher's investigation will take him back to one of our country's greatest secrets and point him toward the long, carefully hidden truth about the most shocking history of all: family history.

MY THOUGHTS/REVIEW:
Although I did receive a preview a couple of days ago, it was only for the first few chapters of this highly anticipated Brad Meltzer novel, THE PRESIDENT'S SHADOW. While I can read fairly quickly, I, of course don't have the book either because it isn't out until today, June 16, and this post is being written on June 15. I am thrilled to be invited and to attend a program where Brad will be reading from this new book, later this week. Therefore, when I have finished reading and listening, I will post my review so you all can also comment there and be eligible for one of the giveaways. I honestly hope you are as excited about this book as I am and will just run and get your own copy now! The beginning part I have read means some long page turning later tonight but if the rest of the book is as good as the first few chapters, than YAHOO! Brad Meltzer has another winner on his hands with THE PRESIDENT'S SHADOW!

I think I'm most interested because of the premise. Can you imagine if they actually found a severed limb in the Rose Garden? The media would never stop. Thanks for the special giveaway!

Books set in the DC area are really interesting to me because we lived and worked there for quite awhile. This would be a terrific late father's day gift for my hubby who is the true Brad Meltzer fan.

I watched the video of the author's Ted Talk on How to Write Your Own Obituary!
I had to write my mother's after she died and after it was in the newspapers, my aunts got mad at me because I had left out some details. But I didn't know her then. So maybe it is a good idea.

Sounds like an interesting premise, this Culper Ring. But finding an arm clutching a paper in its fist meant for Mr Beecher, eerie. Sounds like another thriller for Brad Meltzer! Listen or read, either way a hit.
